On June 8, 2110, billbarstad announced that he will no longer be updating this post as at this time all the existing serials are pd and have been here at IA for some time. One possible prediction.:)

You're about as accurate as Criswell, Chris! Oh, 2110. Well, yeah.

Is your hair all white and wavy with a curl in the front, too?

No, but what I've got left is graying up real fast.

By 2039, only infomercials will be shown on TV. Movies will consist solely of CGI cartoons by 2044. Internet sites like The Internet Archive will be the only sources of comedy and drama entertainment. How's that for a prediction?

"Movies will consist solely of CGI cartoons by 2044."

It's likely to come much sooner than that, I'm afraid. That's why I rarely watch anything newer than, oh, 1970...

By then, no real actors, and all the voices will have been "sampled" from previous motion pictures, television shows, and sound recordings. All motion pictures will come from some guy at a keyboard, if there's any keyboards by then.

I promise that, if I'm still alive (I was born in 1990), I hope to make films using a 35mm camera and a bunch of actors/actresses/extras.

It's my dream to be a low budget film director some day, but I'm worried that I don't have the money or talent.

If I win the lottery and make a movie that turns a profit, I promise to make new serials so this thread can be revived (if IA still exists then, which is unlikely).

Shoot digital, you can post-process it to look like film if you really want.

And you don't need to win the lottery - Monarch of the Moon shot for $75,000, which was a huge jump over Destination Mars, which shot for $6,000. :)

To be honest, I think serials will make a comeback sometime in the next few decades. So, in theory, this thread could last longer.
